Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is: xx-xx.net
I ran this command: sudo /var/scripts/activate-ssl.sh
It produced this output: Stalls after entering my domain name (spinner just spins).
My web server is (include version): This is part of my question.
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu running in Hyper-v on Windows 8.1 host.
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: This is part of my question.
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):?
I’m a complete newbie to these kind of internet issues but am otherwise computer literate.
I have Nextcloud installed in Hyper-V under Windows 8.1 host. Nextcloud is working on local network and is accessible using my domain name, but only via HTTP. I have ports 80 and 443 opened on my router for the Nextcloud IP address. Trying to create an SSL Certificate.
I obtained a domain name to use only for Nextcloud exclusively. I do not have a web site, so nothing is being “hosted” by any service provider.
At the registration service where I bought the domain name, I configured the “A” rules using the wildcard “*” so that my domain name points to my external IP address. I also added an entry for “cloud” so that “cloud.mydomain.net” also points to my external IP address. I added both of these as “trusted domains” in my Nextcloud config file.
When I try to create a certificate using:
after answering the questions and entering my domain name (ie, cloud.mydomain.net), it just hangs (indicator spins) an will not progress.
Question: Can I “self-host” my domain (ie, Nextcloud) or do I have to have my domain hosted at a hosting service in order to create the certificate?
Does Nextcloud have the ACME Cert Bot function built in, or do I have to have my domain hosted by a service provider?
Do I need to check with my ISP to make sure they’re allowing this kind of traffic to my computer?
This is very confusion. Not sure if I used correct terms above. After much searching, could not find answers to these questions. Thanks.
